Getting Started

 

Before you can start to drive you must be in possession of a valid provisional driving licence.

You can apply for your first provisional driving licence online or by completing a D1 application form, which is available from the DVLA form ordering service or from a post office. You must be a resident of Great Britain and meet the minimum requirements for age and eyesight.

The completed application form should be sent to DVLA, you will also need to include original documents to confirm your identity, a colour passport style photograph and the current fee.

You can apply for your provisional driving licence up to three months before your 17th birthday but it will only be valid when you actually reach your 17th birthday. You will not be able to take driving lessons on a public road or take your theory test until then.
